The #SmithsonianEdu Mini-Exhibit Challenge is the first of a monthly series (posted to their blog every 2nd Tuesday of the month). They feature at-home activity prompts for families to spark creativity.
The mini exhibit prompt asks you to become a curator, making a tiny museum, using objects found in your home.
“…everyone curates, from what you choose to wear to the favorite objects you display on a shelf. By curating or selecting and organizing their collection objects, museums tell stories.”
To inspire you, they offer a few examples, like Damián Ortega’s museum exhibit which is a “frozen explosion of hand tools hovering in an almost dreamlike state”, and a mini exhibit entitled, “Museum of Ill-Advised Quarantine Purchases“.
See if you can tell your own story with your objects!
Share your creations with the museum by tagging it with #SmithsonianEDU
